TFB Review: New Talon Modular 1911 Grips

The legendary 1911 pistol has been a staple of the American gun culture for over 100 years after its initial introduction. Despite numerous advancements in firearms operation, materials, and ammunition technology, the venerated 1911 still remains a favorite of many firearms enthusiasts. However, the 1911 pistol in its original form is far from perfect. One […] Read More … The post TFB Review: New Talon Modular 1911 Grips appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

‘National Security’ Excuse Takes War on Guns to Dangerous New Level

With his NSC proxies out there equating gun owners with terrorists ready to inflict “mass casualty attacks” on American soil, this is starting to sound more like Joe’s Plan to End Gun Owners. U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “We share Biden’s view that the level of U.S. gun violence is a ‘national embarrassment,’” an April 22 Politico opinion piece declares. “But as National Security Council veterans who have specialized in counterterrorism—with direct experience involving far-right American terrori...

Pants On Fire: Biden’s Bogus Gun Control Claim Up in Smoke

Joe Biden has been caught in another canard about guns. (Screen snip, Biden-Harris campaign.) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- When Joe Biden declared during his address to Congress and the country—as quoted by The Hill—that, “We need a ban on assault weapons and high capacity again. Don’t tell me it can’t be done. We did it before and it worked,” he evidently didn’t count on people listening who knew better. One of those people was the National Review’s David Harsanyi, and he quickly blew the whistl...

X Marks the Spot

Unika Vaev presents another way to dampen sound and brighten the look of any room: Air-X, designed by Stefan Borselius, is a polyester felt module fashioned in the shape of the third-to-last letter of the alphabet.

metadata search criteria too long

Got my book from Amazon; have problem in the metadata download. Popup says the "search text" is too long. I think that the when Calibre does the search it uses the title as the search criteria so I guess I can edit the title & re-edit back before the metadata is saved? Or is there a way to just expand how the metadata is downloaded? i.e. book is: "Grimoires and Where to Find Them (The Case Files of Henri Davenforth Book 6)" Better to truncate the stuff within the parenthesis? suggestions w...

360 Pocketbook touch HD2 frozen on cover of the last book

Hello guys, I have three years old pocketbook touch HD 2. Lately, I haven't been using it for around three months, and the battery probably drained out completely. I've tried to charge it via charger and USB cable for a whole day, but the screen is stuck on the cover of the last book. I've tried to hold the power button for 10 secs, tried to press and hold the reset button with a toothpick, but nothing seems to do anything.

The Case for More Guns, Learn to Think Like The Sheep Who Chose to Be Unarmed

Courtesy Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- People in the gun culture often express amazement about people who want them disarmed. They ascribe the desire to hostility and malice. It may be true for a minority of those who actively wish for a disarmed population.  A significant number, likely a majority, have made a voluntary decision to be unarmed. It is important to know your opponent and to understand their motives. Three years ago, this correspondent wrote an essay on how to underst...

Calibre fails to open after rebooting Macbook

I rebooted my Macbook today and after restarting, I can't get Calibre to open. I've tried from the Applications folder, from the dock icon, from Terminal, and by using the "open with..." command on a file. I get the splash screen which tells me that it's Loading books, then that it's Initializing user interface, then the splash screen disappears and Calibre...does nothing. It's not in the Activity Monitor and there's no dot beside the dock icon as there would be if the app was running. All othe...

Knowing Your Background

Among the great purging of books I'm doing, the filter for keeping a physical hard copy on the shelf is somewhere between "Am I going to read this again?" and "Is it of enough personal significance that I want the actual dead tree book as opposed to just a file on a device?" The latest series to fall under scrutiny is Jack Whyte's Camulod Chronicles. I really love the premise and late Classical to early post-Roman Britain is a fascinating historical setting for me. In the early Fifth Century, ...
